The COVID-19 outbreak has sparked a race to produce personal protective equipment (PPE), which is largely plastic.

However, their sustainable disposal, especially the disposal of single-use plastic, has raised concerns among environmentalists and academics as PPE contains large amounts of microplastics. For example, the World Wide Fund estimates that if only 1% of the 1 billion masks used in Italy each month were improperly disposed of, it could lead to the buildup of 10 million plastic masks in the environment, leading to unprecedented pollution could. In such a dire scenario, efficient plastic waste disposal techniques can be critical to tackling the long-term threats from the exploding plastic pollution fueled by the coronavirus pandemic. However, due to interruptions in the supply chain, the market for the disposal of plastic waste will grow moderately in the current year.
